Fantastic cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lark Cottage. All modern, beautiful, comfortable and large, this home was conveniently located and only steps from a beautiful golf course and spectacular huge beach on which we were often alone. The owners are impeccably accessible and helpful. What a great find!

Awesome Cottage - comfortable, well equipped,convenient; wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We picked Lark Cottage because of the views and location, but got much more than we anticipated. “Close to golf & beach” means 3 minute walk to Tralee golf course; beach access is through the golf course! Views out the front window are across Tralee Bay to Dingle Penninsula and to Ardfert and beyond out the back. Interesting restaurants, each with different personalities, are within 10-15 minute drive. Activities are boundless, including hiking, horse trekking, horse races in season, and of course golf at Balleyheigue, Castlegregory nearby and others more distant. Lark Cottage is a comfortable place to plan the day’s excursions, relax and share memories at day’s end. Kieran and family have thought of everything from the welcome gift of a bottle of wine and apple tart to games, videos, music, books, and lots of brochures and guide books to all you need in the kitchen, outside in the yard, and in every room in the house. There are throws to snuggle while reading and wi-if to connect as needed. Unfortunately the weather was not good during our visit, but we watched storm Hector come on shore and learned to brave the Irish climate while still doing everything we planned and more. We found driving on the small country roads challenging, and had to add time into all our excursions to allow for getting off course. We decided to drive to Shannon the day before our flight home in order to make an early morning flight without driving at night. Thank you Kieran and family for sharing Lark Cottage with us. We take home many fond memories.

Stunning views - beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our stay in Tralee! The cottage was beautiful, spacious, and came with stunning views. It was wonderfully located for day trips to Dingle, Cork, Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry and many other attractions and at the end of the day provided a quiet place to relax. Thanks again Kieran and family for letting us your cottage!!

The cottage was remote, clean, had great views and filled all of our needs

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure dealing with Keirnan and his wife. They were both polite and very helpful (especially in helping us with golf). The cottage was a perfect fit for our golf and our touring adventures. It had everything one would need and more - whether you were dining at the cottage or just doing breakfast there as we did. The views of Tralee golf course and bay and also of Fenit Harbor and the Dingle Peninsula from the cottage dining area were spectacular !!

We would stay there again without hesitation and would recommend it to others.

Lovely cottage with outstanding panoramic views.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, the owner of this cottage is incredibly approachable and helpful. Pre- booking I had some technology questions and all were answered (wanted to take an Amazon firestick and stream content through that; plus a laptop - both worked well). He also put a brand new dart board on request and apple pie, marmalade, soda bread and wine was a much appreciated welcoming gift.

Secondly, the layout of the cottage - very spacious and well laid out. Thirdly and most impressive, are the panoramic views around it, especially from the living room. Every room has several windows and overlook either or all of mountains, water, beaches. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to sit outside in the evenings, tired from days out, just feeling ourselves become more and more relaxed, with a nice glass of wine or G&T but mostly due to those views. I could sit and watch the tides go in and out, the clouds roll by and cover and uncover the mountains opposite, all day! My 14yr old really loved the big trampoline in the garden!

Beds were really comfy; great ensuite shower room/toilet and family bathroom. Kitchen very well equipped and the golf club a few minutes walk away is worth visiting even just for Guinness and sitting by the window looking out on absolutely astounding views! I must have taken a thousand photos! We had breakfast there one morning and dinner on our final night. Really good!!

Cottage is ideally located for days out. Huge amount of tourist information, things to do, where to eat etc, provided in the lobby. If weather is bad, the living room is very well equipped with loads of dvds, cd's and the playroom equally equipped with board games and toys etc. Utility room is also well equipped although as we were only there for a week, we didn't need to use it.

I have rented holiday cottages before and you know sometimes you feel when you get there, it doesn't live up to the hype? This one exceeds it. So much so that it has now become our benchmark for future holiday rentals. I'm not sure I'll ever find one that lives us to this idyllic cottage, which really spoilt us! And at such a good price too. Believe me, I've paid a lot more for a lot less.

This really is a little piece of heaven and I'm from Scotland so used to beautiful views (and always looking for a bargain)! So quiet at night and lovely sunsets out back, which also has beautiful views. Definitely get down to the secret beach! Absolutely 100% recommend to all.

There is so much to do in this beautiful scenic location. It is a great touring base to explore the Kingdom of Kerry but at the same time it is in such a lovely location you may not want to travel too far! As well as being surrounded by views of Tralee Bay, Brandon Head, the Sliabh Mish Mountains and Kerry Head you will be within walking distance of secluded Barrow beach which connects with Banna Beach which is renowned for it's surfing and beautiful Ballyheighue beach.

Tralee Town is only 20 minutes drive away with all the amenities you would expect from a bustling market town. For indoor activities you can choose from the Kerry County Museum, The Aqua Dome for water slides and a cinema to name a few.

At the cottage you will also overlook Tralee Golf Club which was designed by Arnold Palmer. The are several other golf clubs within the area and Ballybunion and Killarney Golf Courses are within 30 minutes drive.

There are a number of traditional and seafood pubs and restaurants in the locality and Tralee Golf Course serves meals all day if you fancy breakfast overlooking the 1st tee.

Fenit Harbour is less than 15 minutes drive and has a popular Marina and relaxed atmosphere. The Sailing School in particular is very active during the summer season. Sea Angling is accessible through this port and River Fishing on the River Feale is available in Listowel approximately 30 minutes drive away.
